I'm interested in recipes for a great homemade Bloody Mary. I am not talking about using any mix -- there's another thread for that. I'm referring to using fresh tomatoes and other ingredients.
I'd also like feedback on spirit. I'm considering offering vodka, gin, and akvavit. Ransom Old Tom gin also sounds interesting.
I admit to not being a big Bloody Mary fan, but I've been tasked with bringing them.
